Reading, writing, magazine scanning,
TV napping. The waiting room provides
cookies and cappucino for passing the
time until the service specialist nerd
brings the bill or news that it was more
complicated than first thought.
Is anyone waiting for a ride? The man
in the orange tee shirt walks through
with periodic aid offers but we all
know we won’t go. It is the waiting room.
Like purgatory but with less to do. Bide
the time, bless the time. We’re here to wait.
